Kings vs. Ducks tonight

When: 7:30.

Where: Honda Center.

On the air: TV: Prime Ticket. Radio: 1150, 830.

Records: Kings 15-10-2, Ducks 10-11-4.

Season series (2008-09): Kings 3-2-1.

Update: Since the lockout, the Ducks are 18-8-4 against the Kings, including 9-3-2 at home. The Kings are expected to have the same lineup as in their 2-1 shootout victory over Chicago on Saturday, which means defenseman Rob Scuderi (ankle) is likely to miss his seventh straight game. Left wing Ryan Smyth (upper body) skated Monday but remains about two weeks from returning. The Ducks will play the finale of a seven-game homestand they regarded as a make-or-break point of their season. They're 4-1-1 so far but remain near the bottom in the West. Right wing Corey Perry set a franchise record Sunday by recording a point in his 18th straight game. It's also the longest point streak in the NHL this season.
